PARTHENIUM HYSTEROPHORUS - FAMINE WEED

 

Home owners of Marloth Park are urged to assist in the control of this dangerous, invasive, alien weed.

Description: Tall hairy stem, up to 1.5m high. Pale green, hairy leaves and prolific small white flowers.

Where: Roadsides, water courses and overgrazed land (Marloth Park)

Why Invasive: Parthenium can germinate and grow, mature and set seeds in 4 weeks.

It inhibits the growth of indigenous plants, and adults have up to 25000 seeds.

Health Risk: It is a skin and respiratory irritant to humans and exposure over prolonged periods can cause allergic dermatitis and asthma.

Control: Manual removal is recommended. Property owners can assist by removing plants from their stands. Always use gloves and goggles. Pull up the plants by their roots and bury deeply. It is preferable to do this before the plant seeds. DO NOT SLASH AS THIS SPREADS THE SEEDS.

Why do this: The assistance with the removal of this dangerous weed will benefit the veldt rehabilitation programme, the carrying capacity of our land and the future of Marloth Park.
